Dunderave Castle
The Castle of Doom of Neil Munro's novel, Dunderave stands on a silver rock now unhappily sandwiched between the main road round Loch Fyne and the loch itself. It was built as an L-shaped tower house ( with a prominent round tower at the angle of the L) by Iain, Chief of the MacNaughton's, in 1596. About 1700 the MacNaughton married a daughter of Campbell of Ardkinglas but then, changing his mind, absconded to Ireland with her sister. The property was thus forfeited to the Campbells.
